Our Dental Team
Nonna, Schedule Coordinator
I became a part of this wonderful team in March and have really enjoyed my experience and work here. I have not only learned more about dentistry but I’ve learned a lot about myself because the doctor's have significant knowledge in whole health. I love coming to work to learn something new every day and feel grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of a family that strives to provide beautiful smiles that will last a lifetime! My strong passion is to provide exceptional customer service and make patients' day brighter. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, hiking, and traveling.
Karen, Front Office
I am happy to join the team at A Smiling Heart Dentistry, where our passion and dedication to excellence in dental care can be seen and felt. My desire is to contribute to the positive experience each patient can expect to have in our office.
It has been my great pleasure to work in dentistry for over 20 years in Treatment coordinator, Reception and Business office positions.
I came to the dental field after doing volunteer hospital work and discovering the joy that comes from helping people in sometimes stressful and uncertain circumstances.
While dental work has been rewarding, my supreme joy has been in being a mother of 4 sons, now grown, married. I enjoy church service, reading (especially American history). I look forward to each day for the opportunity to make new friends and acquaintances and the enjoyment of my happy life in this exceptional, God given country.

I truly care about each one of your needs deeply and want to share God given love with my patients.
